Welcome to Caveworld

Caveworld – Waitomo’s Small-Group and Private Glowworm Tour Specialists!

A family-run, locally owned and operated business since 1992. With exclusive access to the Footwhistle Cave, that is home to some of New Zealand’s best Glowworm displays. Caveworld specialises in providing the personal and professional touch on our authentic Waitomo tours.

Our small pool of guides are locals who love what they do, they have unmatched knowledge and experience, and thanks to our unique location, we offer the chance for you to see magnificent, undisturbed glow worm displays – better, we believe, than anywhere else in the world.

Who are we?

Cave World offers a range of memorable glow worm experiences, from fun-filled adventures you can enjoy with family & friends to relaxed walking tours.

Footwhistle Cave (also known to local maori as Te Anaroa Cave) was officially opened on 1st July 1992 after a lot of hard work and development. This was a dream come true for founding cousins JoJo Davis and Richard Carnachan.

Their vision was to provide an adventure experience, with a local flavour to visitors to the Waitomo Caves area. Caveworld Ltd continues to deliver a local flavor to it’s experiences and continues to be a locally owned and operated company. The company prides itself on offering authentic experiences in both adventure and non adventure caving activities.
